You probably, ask yourselves a question: Why does she not search for the Russian husband? Why does she search for the husband living far from Russia? Can she wishes simple to live in other country? No, it is not so. I will explain my point of view. I read many books and articles about men. I consider, that the foreign husband is better than the Russian husband.

First, I think, that a family is sacred. I read, that foreign men think also. The family is sacred which is necessary for protecting and to do all for the family and even more. During same time Russian men do not think so.

Secondly, foreign men live longer the Russian men on the average on 15 - 25 years and even more. Why do foreign men live longer the Russian men? Because foreigners are initially happy. Foreign men have light, idealistic, a kind and optimistically sight. Besides, the reason of that foreign men live much longer men from Russia and in their genetics.

Emails from Maria Shapkina to Jonas (Sweden)
My loved Jonas,

I only to come back from the airport. I to carry out it is a lot of time, it to reach the airport.
I observed various dates of flight.
The prices for tickets in many respects depend on a class of the plane and from which I shall fly to what time.
I want to tell, that I to consider the cheapest tickets onboard the plane.
I considered many companies and tried to choose most of all the best tickets. I should tell, which cost from tickets also
Includes taxes and tax collections of taxes of the airports. One ticket will take onboard the plane from me 470 dollar. It - not so the high price in comparison with 700 dollar on higher class. There there are tickets and more dear.
For example It - 850 dollar!!! But such expensive places in the plane are not necessary for me.
I shall fly in the cheapest class, if only only this plane has connected our hearts!!! Mine Jonas, in other words I shall demand in 940 dollar for my tickets.
I want to explain once again to you, that I should buy tickets directly here in Russia.
I should prove it my material stability. For me it would be better, if you bought for me tickets,
but it it is IMPOSSIBLE in our case because I receive the visa of the tourist and I should show in embassy of the receipt on payment from my name.
You understand it? Please, trust me all heart. I promise you, that I shall take all things correctly.
I shall arrive to you as I promise. I very much I want to arrive to you
